MangaGamer has now announced that Soul Link, their second offering from Project Navel will be available at the end of December. Furthermore, there is now an official website for the English version of the game, with a synopsis and a link to download the opening movie. The game is marked as uncensored, but there is a note posted on the official webpage, which states that “due to uncontrollable issues, a part of the CGs in the original work could not be included.”
UPDATE: We received an email from MangaGamer stating that six CGs “having an arguably underaged looking character naked” will be removed from the game release. The reasoning behind this was that “[they] don’t want to risk getting the law in the way of [their] future releases” and that “it was a difficult decision made under the current circumstances.” Furthermore, should this happen with future releases, “[they] will be sure to let you know before the release.” The email also states that no text was removed from the game. EvoSpace, a volunteer for MangaGamer, has posted clarifications on the CG removal, stating that they are all of Nanami, who is an unnaturally “underaged” character in the game. All future releases run the risk of having CGs removed for underaged characters, although previous releases will not be touched due to difficulty. He goes on to point out that:
There will be an actual person who will be imprisoned if this goes in the wrong way, and surely affect their future releases, and worst case this whole project will be gone. It is a risk they couldn’t take and it was a difficult decision for them as well.
